    If you are running 3.5.x and you want to upgrade to the latest you should download 3.5.3 and not 3.5.0.

    Do not edit any files, only use the 3.5.3's includes/ file (rename it to config.php first!)

    Then edit it and point it to the right mysql database details.

      hi thanks for the reply , well ok we were using before the 3.00 and now for upgrade we deleted all the files and then uploaded all the files of the latest version 3.5.3 which is the latest but we still get that error

        Did you run upgrade.php ?


        • #5

              If you have the MySQL database from 3.0.0 still in place,
              and you want to upgrade to 3.5.3 you delete the 3.0.0 files, leave the database in place and then upload the 3.5.3 files. Then you rename the to config.php and edit it.

              The values for the variables from the 3.0.0 config.php file are the values the new (almost alike) variables require from the new 3.5.0 config.php file.

              If you get that error that means one of the entered values are incorrect.

                      In that case please open a new support ticket and include your forum url, your full admin user/pass, your ftp host and user/pass and phpmyadmin details. And we will have a look. Please link back to this thread too.
